How do you move the index and job server in sharepoint 2003

  Asked By: Rey    Date: Dec 25    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1874

Hoping you can help me out, I'm tryingto add an additional sever to
my Sharepoint 2003 farm - I go into farm topology and untick the
index server role on my existing front end web server, tick the index
server roleon my new server and change the job server to be the new

The new server can crawl fine but it wnt propogate and I get oodles
of errors in event viewer (9000, 7010, 7039, 7037) generally stating
that "the content index cannot be enabled because its propagation
version cannot be verified against the dedicated index server" - I've
read the kb article 838223 and it doesnt help much (mainly because I
dont understand it)

If I move the index role back to theoiginal server and reset the
indexes everything is fine.
My question i .... how do you successfully move the index andjob
server roles acriss to a new server to expandout the farm - i've
wached the mindsharp videos and I thought this wasallyou needed to do
but it seems that the Portal_Content and Non_Portal_Contentindexes
remain associated with the original index server and I justcant see
how to move them.

To be honest, this is drivng me absoluely nuts so any advice you have
would be greatly appreciated.
